Whether dubbed plumper, maximizer, or venom, almost all lip-enhancing products share that tingly stinging sensation.
But of all the many pucker-boosters we've tested, the sting is never the goal, it's merely part of the process.
That is, of course, until now. Enter Morphine Lips, a new lip balm containing a touch of benzocaine (a.k.a. the numbing stuff in cough drops). Aside from promising to soften your lips with ingredients like Avocado Oil and Vitamin E, the balm, according to the site, is intended to "help facilitate that "perfect" kiss and one that no one will ever forget."
Packaged in a mysterious little black tube, the balm leaves us feeling slightly curious and totally conflicted. Sure, we get the whole beauty is pain thing, but maybe a painkiller-infused lip balm is taking the whole thing a little too far...Check it out here (It's $19.50) and let is know what you think.
